Fat & the Moon
Fat and the Moon's Aloe lotion was concocted in the thick of a cold, dry and relentless Brooklyn winter. Though the ingredients are gentle, this lotion showed no remorse to dry and chapped hands and faces. This unscented lotion can be used for face and body alike. Aloe hydrates and blocks UV rays while the coconut oil holds in moisture and protects the skin, so it's fantastic for summer bummers like sunburns.
In terms of comparison, the Aloe Lotion is to the All Cream as sour cream is to cream cheese. This lotion is an absolute go-to for sensitive skin people and those looking for eczema or psoriasis relief.
**Aloe lotion is a soothing compliment pre & post fun in the sun skincare products

FAT & THE MOON | Plant Potions for your Bod Garden
Continuing a family legacy of herbalists and natural healers, Fat and the Moon founder Rachel Budde has built her company around providing handcrafted, herbal body care products to those seeking a natural alternative to chemical-filled products. Like a witch over a cauldron, Budde experiments with age-old ingredients and recipes passed down from various healing traditions to craft innovative and simple products that are good for the body and the earth. Fat and the Moon started as an alternative to the toxic, mass production body care industry aiming to provide nourishing ingredients and nourishing messages of self love, and self care.
And if you were wondering why 'Fat and the Moon'....
She says, "Fat as the first word in the name of my business has gotten me in some interesting discussions. People ask me about the name all the time because they can hardly believe I would use a word that has such negative connotations, especially when it is used within ‘beauty care’."
"I use the word ‘fat’ to be provocative; I don’t believe fat is a dirty word. But most of the fat in Fat and the Moon comes from my love of the material- oil is the medium of external herbal medicine. Fat in the form of oil, is the gift of the seed. Fat, both in plants and animals, is where energy is stored. The richness we taste in food, and the suppleness we feel on our skin after a good slather of bath oil, is our bodies recognition of and pleasure in that vital energy. Oil from plants, in and of itself, is medicinal. I feel honored as a medicine maker to indulge in the play of fat and herbs, especially under the influence of the moon."
